#MondayBlogs – Caskets from Costco

Meet Kelly Wilson

kelly-wilson-headshotAs my totes full of notebooks suggest, I’ve been writing since I was a child. I was an Army Brat, and also a shy kid, so I read and wrote a lot.

When I was in college, writing became more of a chore, a necessity to succeed in my classes. It wasn’t until I had my first child that I came back to my passion for writing. My son and I had almost lost our lives, and writing helped me work through the trauma associated with that experience.

Once I started writing again, I couldn’t stop. I often have to get out of bed in the middle of the night to write down a random thought that later turns into a story, or an outline for a book I’m thinking of finishing. I don’t sleep until whatever it is on my mind is written down.

I also found that I enjoyed writing children’s stories, and I became curious about how the publishing industry worked. Creating and submitting stories opened the gates in my brain to more stories, and now I find that I enjoy all different kinds of writing, including grants, children’s stories, magazine articles, poetry, and books of different genres.

Caskets from Costco

51gb-0LxEqL._SX371_BO1,204,203,200_For twenty years, author Kelly Wilson marched through the stages of grief in a straight line, convinced she would soon be done with it. She was totally deluded. Instead, her grief journey resembled a roller coaster. She needed to get to the end of it, and she had no sense of direction. Caskets From Costco is a funny book about grief that demonstrates the certainty of hope and healing in an uncertain and painful world.


What Readers Are Saying

EJ Essic on Amazon.com gave Caskets from Costco five-stars!

“Wilson is a master at carrying us right along withy her on her journey. Caskets from Costco is about a serious subject, but told with a viewpoint that had me laughing even as I was shaking my head in dismay. It is rare to find a writer who can make me laugh even as she deals with the serious business of resolving painful issues. This is a book for anyone who has ever felt the grief and anger of loss or betrayal. Wilson’s sense of humor and down to earth approach to dealing with the messy stuff of life leaves the reader (me, anyway) with a feeling that no matter what we may face, there is a way to view the situation that will allow us to move beyond the pain and smile at the absurdity. From the title to the last page, I thoroughly enjoyed this read and hope she writes more books like this.”
